Carrie's Craft Stuff

Some of my favorite craft-type things to do are knitting and counted cross-stitching. Here are some pictures of my work.

I have many, many counted cross-stitch kits that I have still not done. :lol: These are two of many that I want to eventually start and finish.

I'm learning how to use circular needles. I think I prefer them to using straight needles.

I finally spent the $20 gift card I got for Christmas to Michael's. I bought this cross-stitch kit that was originally $36.00. They had coupons for 50% off a regular priced item, so I only paid $18.50. :joy: Hoping that I can start and actually finish it at some point. I'm thinking about buying some hand-dyed 18 count Aida to stitch it on. :yeah:

Thank you both! Now it's only a question of when I'll actually get a chance to work on it. :evillaugh: I think it would look really beautiful on one of those hand-dyed fabrics. :uhhuh:

I ordered 2 of the hand-dyed fabrics in 18 count Aida. I got Honey Amber for the cat one below and Isolde for the new pattern I got the other day. :joy:

I can't wait to show you all the fabric! It will take about 2-3 weeks to get here. I'm very excited!
